U14 Féile Cup SF
Clann na Gael V Cross 
A beautiful sunny afternoon in Lurgan was the setting for our semi final clash with Clans.
Stephen Murray was the man in the middle.
Ryan Martin converted a free when the game was only seconds old to get the scoring underway.
Clan na Gael scored two points and at midway point of the first half, only one separated the sides.
A super finish from Fiannan Moley into the back of the net edged us in front but moments later the exact same happened the opposite end of the field, the Lurgan boys scored a goal to give them the lead once more.
The home side went on a scoring spree, scoring four unanswered points and as the minutes ticked down until the break they had built up a confortable lead. As the half drew to a close a Cael Caherty  point was quickly followed by our second goal from the boot of Captain Caelan Duffy to leave the score at half time;
Clan na Gael 1-06 Cross 2-02
Clan na Gael had a point registered not long after the ball had been thrown in to extend their lead to two, a Fiannan  Moley point reduced the deficit back to one. A Clans goal, their second of the match secured their lead once again but our boys battled back, scoring 1-3 in the next ten minutes, Ryan Martin (2) and Aodhan  Donnelly scoring our third goal and a point to leave us ahead by two with  a little over ten to go. Clan na Gael evened matters with two points in quick succession and it looked like a draw could be on the cards. Clans scored their third goal with only minutes remaining to give them the lead at a crucial time in the game.
Aaron Haughey suffered a serious injury and play was stopped for twenty minutes as he received medical attention.
The game resumed. Stephen Murray had awarded the Lurgan side a penalty before play had been stopped, Ryan McEntee in goals carried off a great save but was unfortunate when the ball rebounded and Clans kicked the ball into the net. A point from Clans in the dying seconds of the game brought the scoring to a close.
Clan na Gael 4-10 Cross 3-06 
Hard luck boys and management. You all  put in a gallant effort but it wasn’t to be our day. We are so proud of you all.
We wish Clan na Gael well in the final.

Armagh SFL Rd 1
Cross V Killeavy 
Our opening game in the Armagh senior football league saw us face Killeavy.
We were quick off the mark, a Rían O’Neill point in the opening minutes got the scoring underway, Killeavy got their opening score in the ninth minute, their no 2 shooting the ball into our net to give them an early lead. A point for each side and at the midway point of the first half, the visitors led by two. Three points for us without reply, Cian, Rían (f) & Aaron give us the lead by the narrowest of margins. As the half drew to a close, Killeavy slotted over two points and Aaron Kernan slotted over one to leave the score at the break;
Cross 0-06 Killeavy 1-03
From the start of the second half, we were very much in control of the game, scoring 1-4, Cian McConville our goal scorer before Killeavy got their opening score of the second half. The final minutes of the game  saw both sides register three points a piece and as the game entered injury time, Killeavy scored a point. Well done lads and management on a good win to start off our 2019 league campaign.
